Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
London’s biggest country music celebration next to Country To Country Festival is back for 2018. Country Music Week is bringing you another round of talented artists all in one week this October.
Chase Rice will be bringing his new album Lambs & Lions to the UK in the autumn, playing London’s Bush Hall on 23 October as part of CMW. Nashville singer-songwriter Eric Paslay will be playing his latest single Young Forever, as well as all the hits off his self-titled debut album, at The Borderline on 26 October.
Russell Dickerson has also just been announced to join the bill with his show at the Borderline on 27 October. Rounding up the news is a very special show with Duane Eddy at the Palladium on 23 October. Known for his iconic guitar work and hit records in the ’50s and ’60s, Duane Eddy will be bringing his 80th birthday tour to Country Music Week.
The four additions join Drake White, Darius Rucker and break-out country music star Kacey Musgraves who will take the stage at London’s SSE Wembley Arena on 27 October as part of her UK tour in support of her new critically acclaimed record Golden Hour.
Last year’s series of country music shows included shows by Marty Stuart, Lindsay Ell, Wildwood Kin, Kip Moore and many more. It’s the best time to explore British and American up-and-coming country music talent at intimate shows all over London. This year’s line-up is looking stellar already and you can be sure there will be more to come.
